Python Question

Django "./ bower install" tells me bower isn't installed when it is

I'm following the instructions from the django-bower setup readme here. I've installed django-bower (v5.1.0) via

$ pip install -r requirements.txt
(django-bower==5.1.0 is in my requirements.txt). Now I'm trying to run
$ ./ bower install
(as per the instructions) but I'm getting this error:

BowerNotInstalled: Bower not installed, read instruction here -

Trying to run
$ pip install django-bower
gives me a
Requirement already satisfied

What am I missing?


That error message indicates that bower cannot be found. django-bower is properly installed.

Check the instructions here:

npm install -g bower
